Beginning in June, the BSO team at Parkwood is implementing a new “forget-me-not” program. This program will help identify a resident that may demonstrate responsive behaviours. A blue, forget-me-not flower will be placed on the door frame of their room.
What the “Forget-me-not” program can achieve:
- promote awareness for BSO (Behavior Support Ontario) program
- identify and support residents with responsive behaviours
- discreetly and respectively alert staff to the needs and/or behaviours of a Resident
- help to maintain the dignity of the Resident
Our goal for our “Forget-me-not” program is awareness. Promoting a respectful, individualized approach to Resident care, helps both the Resident and Staff. The blue flower lets Family and Friends of the Resident know that our staff has extra supports in place to help with that Resident’s personal care. We welcome input and feedback so that we can communicate and plan for the best care possible.
